For the first time since joining the Eagles at the trade deadline, Jay Ajayi had more snaps than the Birds’ other running backs.

In Sunday’s 24-10 loss to the Seahawks, Ajayi played 31 snaps (41 percent), while Corey Clement got 28 snaps, LeGarrette Blount got 14 and Kenjon Barner got two.

Ajayi carried the ball nine times for 35 yards (3.9), Blount carried it eight times for 26 yards (3.3) and Corey Clement carried it three times for seven yards (2.3). The Eagles got behind in this game and they were finding more success through the air, so the rushing numbers were down.

Ajayi didn’t have a great game, but seeing his snap count increase isn’t surprising. It’s just surprising it took this long. Last week against the Bears he had 22 snaps, which was his previous high with the Birds.
Barner was on the field just twice on offense, but was out there on that key 4th-and-3 passing play late in the third quarter. The Eagles would have had an easy first down, but Barner stumbled and couldn’t get to the ball. The Eagles haven’t been afraid to use any of their running backs in any given situation.

The Eagles entire offensive line and Carson Wentz played all 75 snaps. Zach Ertz played 45 snaps before leaving with a presumed concussion.

On defense, Najee Goode got 18 snaps (29 percent) without Joe Walker (neck). The Eagles opened in their nickel package, so Goode technically wasn’t a starter. Dannell Ellerbe, active for his first time as an Eagle, played just one defensive snap and it came in the first quarter.

Brandon Graham played 47 snaps to lead the defensive ends. Vinny Curry played 35, while Derek Barnett and Chris Long chipped in 26 apiece.

Nigel Bradham and Malcolm Jenkins didn’t leave the field, playing all 62 defensive snaps.

For the first time since joining the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 9, Jay Ajayi was not the leading rusher for the team Sunday in a blowout over the Chicago Bears. Ajayi was almost non-existent for the Eagles in Week 12, rushing five times for 26 yards and catching one ball for 7 yards. He did have one breakout carry for 30 yards in the second half, but fumbled the ball into the end zone at the end of the run. WR Nelson Agholor was able to recover that fumble for a touchdown. Ajayi has not received more than eight touches since joining the Eagles.

Sunday night, Ajayi will need a lot more touches to get going against the Seattle Seahawks’ defensive front. The Seahawks defense is pretty good at defending against the run. They have held offenses under 90 yards rushing in five of the last six games and they’ve kept three teams under 52 rushing yards this season.

Fantasy impact: A week ago Ajayi looked like the best running back in Philadelphia. Now, owners are going to think twice about putting him their starting lineups. Rightfully so — Ajayi can break off a big run at any time, but the Eagles are not giving him a lot of opportunities to thrive in the backfield. He has an uphill battle Sunday night against the Seahawks. Receiving very limited touches, Ajayi can sit out this matchup in Seattle.
